Military forces of the US and the UK have carried out a fresh aerial aggression against Yemeni territories, targeting numerous areas in Hudaydah Province.
In their latest act of aggression on Friday morning, the UK-US forces launched airstrikes on Al-Jabana, Al-Taif, and Al-Kathib regions located in the western province, Yemen’s al-Masirah TV reported.
The extent of the potential damage caused by the airstrikes is not yet known.
The latest aggression came a day after the US confirmed that it had carried out multiple strikes on Yemeni forces’ positions, claiming to protect the freedom of navigation in the Red Sea.
Yemenis have declared their open support for Palestine’s struggle against the Israeli occupation since the regime launched a devastating war on Gaza on October 7 after the territory’s Palestinian resistance movements carried out a surprise retaliatory attack, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, against the occupying entity.
Yemeni Armed Forces have said that they won’t stop their attacks until unrelenting Israeli ground and aerial offensives in Gaza, which have killed at least 27,948 people and wounded another 67,459 individuals, come to an end.
The United States and Britain in December announced a military coalition to target Yemen in support of Israel. But most allies, notably European countries, have raised reservations about the plan, which has seen the US and Britain launch airstrikes on Yemen, and baulked at the idea of being under Washington’s command.
Meanwhile, Yemen’s Ansarullah leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said on Thursday that the country’s operations against Israeli-linked ships have been a “real victory.”
“England and America have suffered huge losses due to Yemen’s attacks and therefore have entered this war,” he said.
He noted the US and British coalition has rushed to help the Israeli regime in its crimes against Gaza by carrying out attacks on Yemen.
Al-Houthi said the US claim of attacking Yemen under the moniker of “supporting freedom of navigation” in the Red Sea is a false excuse.
Al-Houthi pledged that “as long as Palestinian blood is spilled, widows’ tears flow, and orphans cry, we will never empty the battlefield”.
“We will continue our launch of ballistic and guided missiles and drones, and expand our mobilization and preparation activities,” he added.
